Cricket bats are made from willow which is fairly soft. Hence it is advisable to prepare the blade through the process of Knocking in so that it is ready to face the impact of high speed deliveries and to achieve optimal performance and longevity. In Knocking in, the bat goes through a process of oiling and hammering machine so as to make it ready to play and yield out its best.
